Fred Davis, Awakening Clarity
"Let me start this review by saying the same thing everyone else has said about this book who's had a good look at it: it's excellent. The depth of seeing that the author had was tremendous. One of the problems in Nonduality today is that the language has become so common that it fails to surprise or shock us into hearing what is really being said. It's not so easy to bypass the truth with these poems. It's the opportunity to really HEAR something ancient in a fresh way."Peter Sumner, The Seer
"When I look back over 2011, I feel that one of the most significant things to happen in my spiritual journey has been the ‘discovery’ of a newly published little book by the awakened Romanian mystic, Ilie Cioara. I am deeply moved as I read and re-read it and have the strong impression that Cioara’s writings are going to have the same kind of impact as Nisargadatta Maharaj’s spiritual classic, I Am That."
Lee Petersen, Azle, Texas, USA "I have read, re-read & will continue to read this wonderful, heart felt practical guide to deep meditation.
I have found that simply through reading a few of the excerpts you are able to experience the silence of your mind. Great Book !!!"
Alan Jacobs, Poet, Writer and President of the Ramana Maharshi Foundation UK
"Having studied Ilie Cioara's inspired book, I am quite convinced that if its wonderfully wise contents are read diligently, and its prescribed practise is persistenly followed, then it will gradually and gracefully lead the fortunate reader to his or her own Self Realisation."
Pat Cummings, Transcendental Meditation "Thank you, this brings new light to what Maharishi says about the point and the gap between thoughts... just beautiful."Dharshan Naran, Advaita Vedanta "Beautiful and breath taking...."Agnes Napenas, Healing Connections "Beauty-FULL! What a marvellous vision! Gratitude to you for sharing!"
Dee Michaels, Conversations with God, Neale Donald Walsch group
"I love this. It states what many have said and I am coming to realize. Being in the oneness one needs no thoughts. This is truly inspiring to me."
Jerry Katz, Nonduality.com
"For its poetry, prose, its introduction and biographical section, this is as beautiful, powerful, and clear a nonduality book as has ever been written."Tami Brady, TCM Reviews
"Reading about self-knowing is often educational and inspirational. However, when expressed in the form of poetry, there is a depth of feeling that you cannot get through instruction alone. It is a feeling that resonates deep within."
